Welcome to Wimbledon and Putney Commons

Wimbledon and Putney Commons are 1,140 acres of calm and tranquillity in the midst of the urban surroundings of Wimbledon, Putney and Kingston-upon-Thames.   Designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation, the Commons are made up of mosaic of woodland, scrubland, heathland and grassed recreation areas, providing an important home for wildlife and a place for visitors to relax and unwind. 

Created by an Act of Parliament in 1871, the Commons are owned and managed by a Registered Charity - the Wimbledon and Putney Commons Conservators - whose duty it is to ensure the Commons are kept forever open and unenclosed, preserved and protected for exercise and recreation.
